Problem: Consider the following reaction: CO(g) + 2 H2(g) ⇌ CH3OH(g)A reaction mixture in a 5.20-L flask at a certain temperature initially contains 27.0 g CO and 2.35 g H2. At equilibrium, the flask contains 8.65 g CH3OH. Calculate the equilibrium constant (Kc ) for the reaction at this temperature.
